The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 by brothers Frank L. Fenton and John W. Fenton in an old glass factory in Martins Ferry, Ohio. Originally, they painted glass blanks from other glass makers, but started making their own glass when they became able to buy the materials they needed. They moved across the Ohio river to Williamstown, West Virginia, and built a factory in 1906. The first year for glass production was 1907.
This lovely white opalescent bowl is the "Moonstone" pattern, circa 1940-1960. The graceful shape consists of eight fluted sides extending outward from a round base. The individual flutes are crimped as they move upward forming a beautiful shape. The body of the piece is decorated with rows of graduated moonstones somewhat pointed at the base and flattened near the top. The bowl measures 11" across and 3 3/4" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
